Depending how sophicated you want this to be is going to determine how you need to go about it.

if you want the addresses to be added automatically to a database that can be used as a mail list you'll be looking at using some server side code and will be looking to use things such .php / .asp / java or coldfusion amongst others

A less elligant approach would be to have the email address sent to you via a form and then you can manually add the email address to a database, you are still going to need to implement some server side code for this also but it will be much easier to work on than a fully automated system.

there is a good tutorial on this site for setting up a form which sends the results to a email - http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/dreamweaver-php-form.php
